Weight Loss Sucks: The Truth About March

Oh March, how I do not miss you. The thing is: I didn't do crap in March. Well, I take that back, I did A LOT of things but nothing to really help with my weight loss. I had to stop taking the Phentermine because it screwed with my stomach so much. In between the last week of February and the beginning of March I had lost probably about 10-12 pounds on them which was awesome! I wish my stomach could have handled them, but being completely cramped up for days on end was just not worth it to me.

With all of that going on, I only had ONE day off the ENTIRE month. I hate crappy. I drank soda to help give me energy because I was doing 56+ hour weeks between work, internship, and class. And you know what? 

I didn't gain a pound back all month long.

Seriously. How DOES that work?! I know I posted some workout routines that I'm trying to do, but I didn't stick to them. I've only exercised maybe 1-2 times a week if that. This past week or so I've had several people ask me if I have been loosing weight or tell me they can see that I'm loosing. I haven't measured myself (mainly cause I can't find my measuring tape thingy), but I know I loose inches faster than I do pounds and I can really feel it in my jeans that now sag and in a lot of my shirts. 

My grand total as of yesterday morning is.....


I keep balancing back to this weight off and on since the New Year began so maybe now that I've maintained for a whole month it's really starting to show. 

With my internship ending tomorrow *sad face* and school ending in 3 weeks *VERY HAPPY FACE!!* and me getting at least 1 day off a week now *EXTREMELY HAPPY FACE*, I'm getting my act together and have been doing my workouts already this month and putting myself into better eating habits. I've noticed that since I've ate a lot of fast food and crap, I just feel gross. My belly always feels like crap, but I'm all sluggish and just blah and CRAVING fresh fruits and stuff. It's like I don't even know me. 

Goals for April:

Kick the soda to the curb and drink WATER!!
2+ mile walks three times a week at least!
Work on upper body!


  1. I'm so proud of you!! You're keeping on going and not giving up!!! A lot of people would have thrown their hands up and quit by now. Keep on going. The weight didn't go on overnight so it's not going to come off overnight. I wish!!! It's taken me a year to lose what I have lost. I'm NOT a patient person and I'm really wanting to speed it up. But I've been told if you lose weight slowly , it's better.

    Congrats on your upcoming graduation!!! Remember if you need anything all you need to do is gimme a yell. {BIG HUGS}

    1. You truly are the sweetest, Ang! Thank YOU :)

  2. It is SO hard to be motivated to do ANYTHING after a crazy busy day/week/month of work and school! But I'm so proud of you for not giving up! And that is the best quote... SO true!

    1. It really is! I felt either like the walking dead or a chicken with its head cut off. This week I've already walked 5 miles so I'm patting myself on the back for that :)


  3. Great job! The main thing is that you are trying to make that change in your life. I really cannot stand soft drink now. I hate the taste and I am always craving water.

    Good luck for April!

    1. Thanks! When I first started drinking soda again last month I was like UGH what is this carbonated crap?! Then one of the guys at work convinced me to put vanilla syrup in my Coke (HORRIBLE I KNOW!) and I'm kinda hooked. Must. Break. Habit.

  4. What a great quote on that poster... sorry or sore, love it :)


Feel free to comment - they make me feel special. Plus I will think you are awesome if you do leave one. Seriously. You are awesome.
